Informing REDD+ policy: an assessment of CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study

Informing REDD+ policy: an assessment of CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study

Research on climate change mitigation at the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) aims to ensure that forest-based emissions reductions are efficient, equitable and provide benefits to affected communities in developing countries. Through its Global Comparative Study, CIFOR is producing knowledge to inform global, national and local REDD+ policy in 15 tropical forest countries. This assessment asks how well the Global Comparative Study has achieved its aim and how it could be improved. The report presents the evaluation methodology, results and recommendations for CIFOR’s future policy engagement work.
